Yes, this is at least a two part post. ‘Why?’ you may ask. Because I don’t have time to delve into all of the reasons why I love the TV show… but I will give you a snippet. And yes, I think all you literary people out there will appreciate it.
I have to paint a picture for you since I can’t find one…
Castle and Detective Beckett walk into a therapist’s office to look at the murder scene. The body is sprawled out on the couch and Dr. Parish (the medical examiner) is taking notes on the body. The body has been shot a few times; however, what really makes this body different is what is written on the face…
Dr. Parish: Looks like a patient lost his patience.
Castle: Also his command of grammar. You’re should be you-‘-re as in you are, that’s not even a tough one not like when to use who or whom.
Beckett: Do you really think that’s the take away here Castle?
Castle: I’m just saying whoever killed her also murdered the English language.
Bam! And that is why I love Castle. Well, one reason. Yes. It’s a dead body…but he’s totally right. Come on.. this plays back to my earlier post about the hamburger place I boycot at home. It really isn’t that difficult of a distinction. Your and you’re… please
